New Manatee County Boat Ramp Fees Proposed

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - Manatee County may be adding a parking fee for its nine ramp sites in the near future.

Staff from the their Parks and Natural Resources Department is suggesting that commissioners enact at least a $5 fee for all-day parking of a vehicle or trailer at the 18 launch lanes throughout the county.

They say each space would bring in about $500 to the county annually if they would implement that rate, and that the money can be used for improving the boat ramps and even adding additional lanes.
